The common conditions are Retinal detachment, Macular hole, Epiretinal membrane, Vitreomacular traction and complications related to advanced diabetic retinal diseases.


The three common conditions affecting the retina which can be treated medically are age related macular degeneration, Retinal vein occlusion,and diabetic retinopathy.
